Clinical Validation in Dark Pigmented Individuals Finds CIRCUL™ Pulse Oximetry Ring Provides Reliable Oxygen Saturation Readings Addressing Potential Discrimination in Traditional Pulse Oximeters

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 - 7:00pm

The CIRCUL Ring clinical validation study, conducted at the Tongde Hospital of Zhejiang Province, China, compared simultaneous measurements for the CIRCUL Ring and an arterial blood gas (ABG) test from 12 individuals (4 Black, ~33% of total enrollment).

Key Points: 
  • The CIRCUL Ring clinical validation study, conducted at the Tongde Hospital of Zhejiang Province, China, compared simultaneous measurements for the CIRCUL Ring and an arterial blood gas (ABG) test from 12 individuals (4 Black, ~33% of total enrollment).
  • For Black individuals, 100 oxygen saturation measurements from the CIRCUL Ring showed excellent correlation with data obtained simultaneously from ABG testing for oxygen saturations ranging from 100% to 70%.
  • The ongoing COVID pandemic highlights the importance of monitoring individuals' blood oxygenation (SpO2) before, during, and after exposure or infection.
  • The CIRCUL Ring should not be used as the sole determinant in any therapy, diagnosis, or treatment of patients.
